Obviously, you have to improve your own shots (cross court, down the line, lobs, etc), then look for the opening i.e. either down the line, down the middle, or cross court. If you keep your shots low enough he won't be able to kill you with his first volley. The idea is to remove him a bit from his ideal volleying position and then hit in the gap. Occasional lobs are also very important because this way he will be thinking about two options: passing shot and lobs. Some players smash well when they are fresh but not so well when they get fatigued and some miss in tight situations. You have to explore all the situations in which he might miss.
